Evaporative cooling, like air conditioning, cools enclosed spaces including buildings, cooling the contents of those spaces.
Evaporative cooling, unlike air conditioning, cools efficiently. It consumes only a small amount of electric energy even during heat waves when it’s required to work its hardest. Evaporative cooling cools by using the natural cooling process evaporation.
Not only does evaporative cooling’s efficiency make its running costs low, it makes it environmentally friendly. Evaporative cooling has a tiny carbon footprint.
Evaporative cooling’s carbon footprint is typically 90% smaller than refrigerative air conditioning. Evaporative cooling consumes 90% less electricity even during hot spells and heat waves. In fact the hotter it gets, the more efficient evaporative cooling gets.
See how evaporative cooling works for a simple explaination.
Once baked, bread placed in an environment too warm shortens its shelf life by up to a half. Unless cooled at a certain rate the yeast remains active making the bread less fresh quicker.
Taken out of an oven into a cooled environment slows down the yeast, allowing the bread to last as long as it says it lasts on its label.
From a Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) recommendation:
“Unless stated otherwise in product literature and labels, the majority of medicinal products can be stored under conditions of controlled room temperature without compromise to their stability and recommended shelf-life. These products are usually labelled ‘do not store above 25°C’…”
Recommendations on the control and monitoring of storage and transportation temperatures of medicinal products (168k), published by MHRA.
Most medicinal storage in the UK takes place in uncontrolled room temperatures though.
Reported in an article (Keep in a cool place: exposure of medicines to high temperatures in general practice during a British heatwave) for the Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine, Dr. Brian Crichton found that medicinal storage temperatures in the UK reaching 35°C and over are not uncommon.
Storing medicines in an environment too warm can render medicines less effectual causing obvious potential danger.Pharmaceutical storage — in large warehouses, medical practices, pharmacist dispensaries etc. — should be at temperatures no higher than 25°C.
